A walk in a cemetery may not be at the top of your things to do list, but Graceland should be. It's gigantic and filled with gravemarkers of many famous Chicagoans, from politicians to activists and beyond. Take the time to stroll through and learn a thing or two about Chicago.
There are loads of famous dead Chicagoans buried at this North Side cemetery. It makes for an idyllic fall walk, and, if you're lucky, you'll encounter a ghost.
You might not think a cemetery is the best place for a beautiful walk, but Graceland Cemetery definitely is. It's a vast park with interesting grave markers and mausoleums that date back more than 100 years. Just be sure to check the hours before you go. Some days the cemetery gates close before dark.
